How to Care for Down and Insulated Outerwear

Insulated and down jackets need less frequent washings than most outerwear. Over extended use, however, dirt and oils can build on both the fabric and the down fill. To extend the life of Oiselle insulated outerwear, including the Quill and Call Her styles do the following:

  • Follow care instructions on garment
  • Spot clean as necessary
  • Machine wash, ensuring all zippers are closed
  • For best results, use a specific down cleaning product such as Nikwax Down Wash Direct®
  • To maximize loft of the insulation, tumble dry your garment on a low setting with a couple of tennis balls which will prevent the insulation from clumping
  • Tumble drying your insulated jacket will help restore its durable water repellant (DWR) finish
